Isi artikelSince the 9/11 attacks in New York, Muslim identity has become both highly visible and under critical scrutiny. International airports have become a place in which the war on terror is enacted on daily basis. The stringent security measures associated with international travel since 9/11 continually seek to conflate being Muslim with being a terrorist, to underpin discursively constructed definitions of terrorism. The fears generated by these representations of Muslims sanctions the attrition of civil liberties. This strategy of panic created by Western governments, beside the media frenzy, then fosters a general complacency in their societies. This article argues that further actions taken to implement and authenticate such strategies of panic produce a system of dogmatic control and a system of misrepresentation of Muslims in particular. Specifically, the introduction of Scanning Machines in airports, as a tool in the war on terror, instils the notion that the enemy is identifiable. Muslim identity is not pronounced based on what the Muslim truly is, but based on this mechanism of classification for further and extra checking: “Muslim checked, therefore the Muslim is.”
